Transvaginal Mesh Aggregate Settlements Failed to Compensate the Most Injured

Matrix settlements provided little relief for women with catastrophic pain syndromes that lead to a lifetime of disability and need for ongoing medical care.

Simply put, it appears to me that these injuries were not always worked up in the litigation. Our team is preparing these cases for trial.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is little dispute that the Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) in the Southern District of West Virginia failed to provide a path to adequate compensation for the most injured victims. One of the purposes of product liability lawsuits is to protect the rights of injured persons by compensation for injuries caused by dangerous products placed in the marketplace. Another is to serve the public’s interest in having access to safe and effective products. The fact that some of the most dangerous TVM devices remain on the market is itself evidence that one of the purposes of product liability litigation has not yet been completely served.

The women most injured by the TVM devices used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), are those with neurological complications of these devices which create recognized catastrophic pain syndromes including pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. This conclusion is bolstered by the fact that the three neurological injury cases that have gone to verdict from the MDL—those with pudendal or obturator neuralgia—garnered an average verdict of thirty-seven million dollars.

Matrix settlements uniformly provided little relief for women with the catastrophic pain syndromes that lead to a lifetime of disability and the need for ongoing medical care. In essence, the TVM MDL led to one of the most inequitable mass tort cases in US legal history.

Greg Vigna, MD, JD, practicing physician, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, and Certified Life Care Planner explains several factors that led to the inequities in the TVM MDL:

“First, the MDL was focused on erosions, and despite the extensive discovery provided by the Plaintiff Steering Committee (PSC), the individual litigation of an erosion case is many times not economically viable because the monetary damages are generally small for these injuries compared to the costs to litigate the case which can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Second, an erosion case in some ways is more difficult to litigate than a pudendal and obturator neuralgia case because of the fact that many times when a medical device is implanted under the skin, it is subject to erosion. Pacemakers and some other medical devices can erode for instance. Pudendal neuralgia and obturator neuralgia cases allow for specific causation testimony as experts are able to describe how the defect of the device caused the injury, and evidence of safer alternative designs exists. Plain and simple, neurologically injured women many times have stronger cases from a litigation standpoint.

Third, the number of erosion cases compared to the smaller number but many times more serious neurological injury cases may make it economically unfeasible to litigate all of the cases."

Dr. Vigna adds, “It is clear by looking at the work product of the MDL there was little attention paid to those with pudendal and obturator neuralgia given that many of the expert reports in the MDL don’t even mention the diagnoses in devices known to cause these injuries. Simply put, it appears to me that these injuries were not always worked up in the litigation. Our team is preparing these cases for trial."

On May 29, 2020, Martin Baughman, PLLC and Greg Vigna, MD, JD with local counsel filed a case in New Jersey Federal Court involving a woman with neurological injuries caused by Ethicon TVT-O that had been dismissed without prejudice with a tolling agreement after she had declined a settlement offer from an aggregate settlement (Case #: 2:20-cv-06561).

Ben Martin and Laura Baughman are national pharmaceutical injury attorneys in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Vigna is a California and Washington DC lawyer who focuses on catastrophic injuries caused by transvaginal mesh devices including pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

Update to the Paycheck Protection Program Provides Flexibility to Borrowers

Citron & Deutsch

Rick Citron

David Deutsch

By Richard K. Citron and David Deutsch

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As we have reported in recent newsletters, the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), brought upon by the CARES Act, helps small businesses by keeping employees on payroll through this difficult time. Please see our previous entries for PPP details. Today’s significant update is that the U.S. Congress drafted changes to the PPP giving borrowers more flexibility in terms of loan forgiveness. It passed Congress almost unanimously.

The key update with this new bill is that borrowers now have 24 weeks rather than eight weeks to use the funds from the date it is funded. The issue solved here is that many employers could not use the PPP funds within that initial eight week period because their employees filed for unemployment insurance benefits and were resisting returning to the office (especially due to the extra $600 per week provided by the federal government). We received daily calls and emails from clients asking what they can do when employees refuse to return to work as they are making more on unemployment than when they are employed. This update will give those employers more time to use the PPP funds. Now, employers will not be penalized when an employee refuses to return to work when it comes time for the forgiveness calculation.

Another important update with this bill is the reduction from 75% to 60% that the loan proceeds must be used on payroll with respect to loan forgiveness. Now, this new amount gives employers more flexibility on how to use the money to keep their business afloat. More of the funds can be used towards rent and utilities. In addition, the businesses have a longer time period to keep the loan as it is now five years instead of the original two years. The interest rate remains at 1%.

Although these changes are beneficial, we would still like to see more updates. For instance, we would like to see clearer guidance on how to obtain forgiveness, especially for the smaller loans. We would also like to see forgiveness extended to other categories that are required to keep the business viable – other than payroll, rent and utilities – such as marketing, paying for those who make more than $100,000 annually, and helping sole proprietors and independent contractors with additional guidance.

As we receive additional information, we will keep you updated. In the interim, feel free to call or email us with any questions.

Best regards,

Citron & Deutsch

Steve Ruby West Virginia Examines State Ethics Commission Decision to Approve Governor's Plane Use

Attorney Steve Ruby West Virginia examines Ethics Commission decision to approve governor's West Virginia state plane use.

WEST VIRGINIA, USA, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As Governor Jim Justice is approved by the West Virginia Ethics Commission to continue his use of the state's airplane, esteemed attorney and former U.S. Attorney's Office chief Steve Ruby West Virginia takes a closer look at the case in hand.

"It's been decided by ethics officials that West Virginia's state airplane can continue to fly Governor Jim Justice to campaign events," reveals Steve Ruby West Virginia, "as long as such trips coincide with official West Virginia state business."

Ethics officials from the West Virginia Ethics Commission are also said to have approved so-called side trips to the same governor's hometown, according to Steve Ruby West Virginia. The governor in question, Jim Justice, has been approved by the state's ethics commission to use West Virginia's state airplane wherever the primary purpose of flying is for official state business.

Governor Jim Justice cannot, however, it has been ruled, use the same airplane solely for non-governmental actions, nor can he establish official state business solely as a pretext for such use. Justice is a billionaire coal magnate and lavish resort owner, in addition to being a governor.

"The decision will allow Governor Justice to use the state airplane for travel to and from his home in Lewisburg, some 100 miles from his governor's mansion in Charleston," explains Steve Ruby, from West Virginia. His governor's mansion, it's been reported, is located within close proximity of his lavish resort, known as The Greenbrier. Justice's estimated net worth is believed to be in the region of $1.2 billion, according to reports.

While Governor Jim Justice is understood to have used the state aircraft on numerous occasions, eyebrows were raised primarily regarding flights that started or ended in his hometown of Lewisburg. It was, however, also noted that the governor has, to date, used the plane in question far less than either of his two predecessors, according to Steve Ruby West Virginia.

"It was determined that Governor Justice receives no direct personal gain from his West Virginia state airplane travel," notes Steve Ruby West Virginia, speaking from his office in Charleston, "irrespective of where flights take off or land."

Attorney Steve Ruby, West Virginia is a former chief for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of West Virginia.

Among the most high-profile cases handled by Steve Ruby West Virginia to date was that which centered around the devastating Upper Big Branch mine disaster. Ruby recently marked the tenth anniversary of the disaster and subsequent case as he took a personal and professional look back on the tragedy which occurred on April 5, 2010, in Raleigh County, West Virginia.

Steve Ruby, West Virginia briefly returns his focus to the West Virginia state ethics commission's decision to approve Governor Justice's plane use, with it determined that the governor receives no direct personal gain from travel aboard the aircraft. "Furthermore, it puts zero money in his pockets," adds Steve Ruby, West Virginia, wrapping up, "nor, he says, provides him with any private enjoyment."

The Levine Law Firm Releases Top 6 Tips For Choosing the Best Personal Injury Lawyer

Choosing the right legal counsel after an accident is critical and can make the difference between a good experience and a disaster

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Levine Law Firm, one of Austin’s most trusted personal injury law firms, today shared a list of their top six tips for choosing the right legal counsel after being injured in an accident or having to deal with the wrongful death of a loved one. The right lawyer should be a combination of experience and capability, but while there are many obvious aspects to look for, there are an equal number of red flags to avoid.

The latest list from Jeremy Levine, the lead attorney at The Levine Law Firm, continues the firm’s educational content to help individuals make the right choice specific to their unique needs. The below lists out the top six aspects to research and the best questions to ask before you sign a contract for legal services.

#1: Experience

The most important aspect about choosing the best attorney for your personal injury or wrongful death case is their experience level and track record of success. First, this means determining which lawyer will actually work on your case. It is very common, especially among large firms, to have a lead attorney meet with you, then hand a case over to a junior lawyer once a contract is signed. This is the most important decision factor on the list.

HOT TIP – get in writing which attorney will work on your case. If they won’t provide details on who will represent you, choose a different lawyer.

#2: Communication

Lawyers are very busy by nature and constantly in court or depositions, so it can often be difficult to get an attorney on the phone for updates. Moreover, large firms (often with late-night TV commercials) will work to fill their caseload at extreme levels to offset advertising costs and expensive downtown office space – this leads to further trouble in communicating updates to clients. The best approach is to confirm communication style and regularity with your attorney beforehand – if they don’t have communication as a top priority, you will most likely become frustrated quickly.

HOT TIP – ask if your lawyer will give you their personal mobile number.

#3: Staff

While it may seem like a small thing, it’s actually very important to interview the support staff as well as the attorney that will be covering your case. You’ll be working directly with the staff a lot over the months that you case takes to get a conclusion, so it’s important to work with a staff that respects you and acts with compassion.

HOT TIP – when you first call a firm, be sure to see how the team interacts with you. Do they ask you questions nicely, or do they treat you like a number and keep you on hold for a long time?

#4: Familiar with Austin

As with any industry, it’s a lot about who you know not what you know. Obviously, an attorney should be very experienced, but it’s important to also choose an attorney that has been in Austin for a long time and has great relationships with everyone through the court system. A good relationship cannot win a case for you, but it can make the process easier and more fluid.
HOT TIP – ask an attorney who they know that might have influence on your case.

#5: Case Importance

In the personal injury field, the larger the case the more money will be at stake from an insurance company. This means that some cases will typically take priority and can leave you feeling left out. Choose an attorney that views your case as important as you do. At the end of the day, it should always be about helping the client, not the money involved.

HOT TIP – ask how many cases the team is currently working on and how much time will be allocated to your case.

#6: Personality

A lot of what happens in personal injury law comes down to personality and likeability, it’s basic human nature. Be sure to ask yourself if a judge or jury would like the person representing you. Often a personal injury lawyers can have a powerful personality and come across as egotistical or be perceived negatively – this can end up being a disadvantage to your case overall.

HOT TIP – bring a friend with you to the first in-person or Zoom meeting and ask them for their opinion.

“Tiger King” Joe Exotic Claims New Evidence and Prison Abuse in Exclusive Letter to Josh Belcher Uncharted Podcast

The Josh Belcher Uncharted Podcast

Today’s episode of the Josh Belcher Uncharted Podcast features an exclusive 3-page, single-spaced, handwritten letter to fans from "Tiger King,” Joe Exotic.

Keep my story alive and be my voice.”

— Joe Exotic

NASHVILLE, TN, USA, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today’s episode of the Josh Belcher Uncharted Podcast features an exclusive letter to fans from "Tiger King,” Joe Exotic. Joe sent the 3-page, single-spaced, handwritten letter to the podcast from prison, asking that it be read on the show. The letter arrived just in time for the new episode which serendipitously premieres on National Hug Your Cat Day (June 4).

Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, better known as Joe Exotic, became a household name earlier this year when Netflix released an eight-part documentary, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. In 2019, Joe was convicted on 17 federal charges of animal abuse and 2 counts of murder for hire, for a plot to kill Big Cat Rescue CEO Carole Baskin. He is currently serving a 22-year sentence in federal prison.

"I wrote him on a whim because, like most of America, I was fascinated by the Netflix documentary,” says Belcher. “Knowing that a phone interview wasn’t possible, I offered to read a statement from him for my listeners.”

Belcher got much more than a simple statement. In his lengthy letter, Joe declares that “wrong has been done” and hopes that President Trump will “make this right” and grant a pardon. He details new evidence that “2 Assistant U.S. Attorneys, 2 FBI agents and a federal wildlife agent all conspired to commit perjury.” He goes on to mount his defense, and claims he is being abused in prison, saying “I have scars from the skin coming off of my arms from being strapped in a chair so tight and so long just for demanding answers.”

Joe concludes his letter with the statement, “Keep my story alive and be my voice." So on today’s episode, Belcher will read the letter in full, and discuss the “Tiger King” story.
